I can see that in the medical field they sometimes will try to increase income by add extras in treatment, this way their pockets are fuller. They also do this in law.

The doctor was very, very, very unprofessional, and the nurse had no idea how to draw blood. I called in after I noticed very large bruise starting to form. To quote a text message from this practice: "You don't go tooffice and thenyou keep texting me wkend when I am not your MD" Would you want to receive this text from your doctor? Does the above even make sense to you? If you answered no, stay away.

Wait was short and staff was friendly. The doctor was prompt but seemed highly disinterested. Did tests so quickly and forgot about one of the issues I had told him I came in for. Feel like I need to see andadditional doctor to address my concerns. Not a great feeling.

I made an appointment for one condition, and the doctor ordered completely unrelated tests. I did them, and was told there was no charge; I later received a bill in the mail. In addition, the second doctor I saw took apersonal call in the middle of our appointment. It was a telemarketer, and she laughed, but I was very angry that she took a non-emergency personal call during an appointment where I was already agitated. I'm never going again.

This was my first time visiting Dr Chakote and I absolutely love the service that I was given. From the moment I walked through the door I was immediately greeted by the wonderful front end staff registered and within 2 minutestaken back to have my vitals taken by the wonderful nurses and was seen by the doctor right away. I feel as though Dr Chakote took his time to listen to all of my concerns and answered all of my questions in a way that was easy for me to understand. I love the fact that Dr Chakote and his staff are very professional, understanding, compassionate, and very considerate of my time considering the fact that I only have a 30 minute lunch break with my job. I would recommend Dr chakote to anyone who doesn't have a PCP or to someone like me that needs a doctor close to their job to see during their lunch breaks.

Everything that is wrong with healthcare in the US is manifested at this practice. Admin and clinical support staff are kind but fumbled through simple tasks in taking vitals ("hold on, the blood pressure cuff isn't working..?" & 15 full minutesattempting to add my CVS pharmacy to their computer system then giving up.. Although they have all paper based medical records and ask the same questions a dozen times, so it's not like any of the benefits of tech are gained anywhere in the patient experience despite sacrificing all the time and attention it takes to type everything in). Antiquated and horrifically inefficient processes, zero medical help gained (Doctor recommended a host of expensive tests, like an EKG for a healthy 26 year old.. Classic fee for service care.. And was incredibly rude and condescending when I inquired about their necessity and cost). New patient appointment, yet doc did not ask a single question about my health status, symptoms, etc. Didn't look me in the eye once except to scold me for asking his opinion about a medication (he didn't provide a constructive clinical opinion at all, by the way, or even provide 2 sentences with thoughts.. just scoffed and curtly told me not to take medicine if I could avoid it. Thanks, but I am not actively trying to create non-existent medical problems for myself and pay for unnecessary drugs and waste time at the doctor.). I don't typically write reviews for anything but felt morally obligated after truly the *worst* physician appointment I've ever had and becoming offended the more I think about how I was treated. I could honestly write ten more pages with specific feedback. Absolutely avoid this provider at all costs.

Dr. Chakote is exactly what the reviews say he is. He doesn't care at all about the patient. All he asked is what i was there for.... listened to my heart beat then sent me on my way. I had todo a follow up and booked an appt at his other location and when I showed up he wasn't even the doctor in office. He gave no advanced notice that he would be having me see someone else. His nurse practitioner is amazing though. Her name was Norma and she was very professional and knowledgeable.

Was a new patient with pain in the lower back on the right side with frequent urination. Symptoms of possible UTI. He asked me what I was there for before he introduced himself. The next question was how did I findhim? I searched ZocDoc and Google him to see the reviews, which were not very good. He was more interested in the reviews. I was in pain and needed to see a dr asap. He never gave any possible cause for my discomfort, just ordered a lot of test and xrays. He said good thing you came to a place where you can do all the test. I declined many of the test he ordered as my main concern is the pain in my back and abdominal area not chest, neck, legs, etc. I spent 3 hrs and finally said enough is enough when is the dr going to speak to me? Just give me an antibiotic. I should of gone to the ER at least they would of given me some sort of diagnosis. The sonographer on the other hand was rude. He told me if I corporated this would be faster. I wasnt inhaling and fully exhaling fast enough. The ladies in the office along with the guys who did the xray and drew my blood were very pleasant.

Honestly, I never left a doctors office feeling the way I did wit this doctor. Dr. Chakote absolutely rushed this visit, he seemed uninterested throughout the whole visit. When I told him the symptoms I was having like fainting spells, andweak bladder..he didn't ask me whether I saw someone or anything, he ASKED ME WHAT PRESCRIPTIONS I WANTED, HE ASKED HIM IF I WANT TO TRY THIS MEDICATION AND THAT MEDICATION.. He seriously asked me what I wanted to take. When I asked him if I was taking blood work he said no your insurance does not cover it. every doctor has taking blood, I just do not understand. I was told there is another doctor on a different day that is good so I will try her. This location is convenient but he really needs to be spoken too. I am very upset that he will make hundreds off of me and did not service me :(
